Just when we thought the 2020 Democratic field was starting to wind down, it looks like it might be widening, yet again. And who better to enter the race than twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton?

During an interview with BBC Radio 5, the former secretary of state said she isn't ruling out a potential run. 

“As I say, never, never, never say never,” Clinton said. “I will certainly tell you, I’m under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it. But as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you, that is absolutely not in my plans.”

Of course, she couldn't – or wouldn't – say who is pressuring her to make a run. This comes after she said earlier this year that she would not run but would do everything in her power to get Democrats elected. If she did decide to throw her hat in the race, it would make sense, considering she said last month she's not endorsing any 2020 Democrats.

Her remarks are interesting, especially because she posted a video on Twitter also encouraging people to run for public office. 

"If you've ever looked around and thought 'Hm, someone should really do something about that,' guess what? That someone could be you," Clinton said in a video. "There are more than half a million elected officials across America. Why shouldn't you be one of them?"

Brace yourself, folks. We might just see Clinton vs. Trump round two.
